Subject: Riot police after the Show?
Twas the last outdoor concert in Hartford for a long, long time!
Anyway, the sound quality seems pretty good here, no complaints from me. Brought back some good memories, and one remembered headache.
Subject: First Show
and in those days, at that age, getting to shows in NYC or Boston was not easy from central CT. There's an added twist
to to this that is kind of a long story. So, I'll make it brief to share the gist. Background info, J. Barlow, B Weir's lyricist went to college in Middletown CT. at Wesleyan. My Mom knew him then, she worked there. I went to show with my friends at the time and found a spot in the crowd in the sdbd area. During one of the first songs, I saw a woman walk out and sit down on the front edge on the stage near K. Godchaux. It took only a moment to realize THAT IT WAS MY MOM!!! So I immediately started making my way up towards the stage and when I got as close as I could to where she was, during Tennessee Jed, I started yelling, "hey Mom", obviously everybody around me thought I was quite insane, or, at least did NOT want whatever it was I must be on. But she heard me and spotted me and waved me over to the backstage gate. There she met me and I was whisked in and in a blur she walked me up onto the stage and sat me down where she had been, with the consent of Steve Brown, the stage manager at the time. Too incredulous to fully comprehend what was happening, I got to watch the rest of the first set from that spot (literally 6-8 feet from Jerry, on the front edge of the stage). For the 2nd set I had to move back a bit to a less incredible spot. Anyway, an amazing first show,
that was also a once in a lifetime experience.
